[ Editor’s Note: Early this week Chris Wilson reviewed Buffer’s Social Media Calendar, here’s another look at it. ]
Buffer is one of my favorite apps. My main goal when I started to use it was to schedule my tweets, so they nicely spread out during the day. But new features they’ve rolled out over time have made me a real fan.
Tweetdeck is my Twitter app and of course I can schedule tweets here as well, but it’s way more cumbersome. I’m one of those people who still uses an RSS Reader to read blogs (I use Feedly) and it gets along well with Buffer. I don’t have to open a post to be able to add it to Buffer, since an integrated button in Feedly takes care of that. If I want to add a picture to a tweet (and I do use one whenever possible because it raises engagement), I do need to open the post. If the picture is big enough, hovering over it will show the Buffer logo and I can add the picture to my tweet automatically. Easy-peasy.
